100 Years Celebration of Intercontinental Flight between the United Kingdom and South Africa (2020)

The UPAS Team was given the opportunity to document the flight of "Little Annie", a Russian Antonov 2, during her celebratory flight over the University of Pretoria Engineering 4 campus. Six historic aircraft types partook in this event and flew over in order of their ages. We are extremely grateful to Mr Mark Hill and Mr John-Mark Hill for allowing us to document the flight of "Little Annie" and ride along during the display. Some awesome footage was taken of the flight by mounting action cameras on the Antanov 2 wing and inside the cockpit. Furthermore, we also recorded the radio activity.
